A very quaint small town restaurant with a good selection of salads, sandwiches and other menu items. This is a casual dining experience perfect for lunch, breakfast or a casual dinner.

Decorated in 50's-60's style and done very tastefully. Food is good but pricey. They serve nature friendly coffees that are excellent. Bakery products are a must try.
